Coming Home

29 / 02 / 20

This is a story about love, protection, care – the meaning of family. There is a specific group of vulnerable children who grow up in Myanmar without the protection of a loving family. Orphans, street children, or children who are in conflict with justice, traditionally end up in monasteries or state institutions, so called training schools. These schools lack the most basic needs in health and hygiene, and do not offer the support and protective environment a child needs to grow up.


‘My Childhood, My Right’, an EU-funded project, implemented by Terres des Hommes, focuses on the right of each child to grow up in a loving and caring family. The project aims at creating an effective alternative to institutional care for vulnerable children. Reintegrating children among their families or communities is a priority. Orphans or children whose family setting is not suitable for reintegration are supported by quality alternative care options such as foster families or kinship care.
